OK, heres the deal. So my Liberty Limited Latitude is a 2WD. Not really much one can do with it or about it. I appreciate you all and your suggestions as well. I am considering "transforming" my Liberty into a SRT version. However, I havent seen any 2012 models of SRT's anywhere to get an idea of what Im looking at getting as far as parts. She is black with limited chrome, 18" chrome wheels, stock suspension. I know I will need to lower it some, put 20" chrome five spoke wheels and that is fine since she doesnt get off road (Not Trail Rated! LOL) Im wondering what type of exhaust will sound ok with a V6 (no rice burner sound!), maybe a flowmaster 40 series with a nice chrome tip. Im going to plasti-dip the rest of the chrome trim and emblems black. Am I on the right track? Kinda sinister look! Input?
If you go on Youtube there are quite a few exhaust videos for a Jeep Liberty to give you some ideas. There also have been a few exhaust questions on this forum you could search and read. Some people just cut off the resonator, some people simply replace the muffler, do both, or replace the whole system.
He could get a similar look to a SRT. All SRT is a performance trim. Lower it give it a wider stance etc then turn to trying to work the engine and you can "make" a SRT-6.
Goodluck David. The there isn't much out there for the 3.7 and the Liberty itself. There's a few around here that lowered their KK for a more sport look though. I think it was Libertyrs or something like that. Try getting in touch with him.
Some things that come to mind if you want to make a street Jeep, would be low profile tires such as Pirelli or Continentals on 18-20"rims. Suspension companies I remember from my Maxima days were brands like KYB, Koni, Eibach, Energy Suspension, Addco.
The steel hood weighs about 2 tons, if a fiberglass one would reduce the weight if someone would make it but any weight reduction would be plus.
As far as engine mods, some people claim to have luck with Chips, and Air intakes. Keneth Bell made a supercharger for it, but when people installed in the 3.7 it blew it to pieces. Things like a forged Crank, Pistons and Piston rods would fix that.
The trans is another issue, a 5 or more speed would be much better, however, they way the geniuses at Chrysler engineered so you are stuck using the 42rle 4spd slush box.
Good luck in your build. Another thing you could do is trade it for a Nitro with the 4.0 and 5 spd.
When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.
